Akkusativ and Nominativ?

can anyone explain what is akkusativ and nominativ and how do we recognize what is being used in the sentence?

A little tip to figure it out: nominative = Who is doing xyz?


Akkusative is used when the noun is the direct object of the sentence: E.g. I drink the tea = Ich trinke den Tee.

Nominative is used when the noun is the subject, not the object. E.g. Milk is white. = Milch ist weiƟ.
